Schneider, Johann Jacob

Schneider, Johann Jacob was born Feb. 8, 1797, at Basle, where he also pursued his theological studies. In 1819 he was called to Grenzach, in Baden, and since that time he supplied the pulpit in different places until, in 1859, he was called to Betberg, where he intended to remain. Bodily infirmities came over him and ended his life March 24, 1859. Besides a number of hymns which he composed, he published Die christlichen Sänger des 19. Jahrhunderts (Basle, 1847).
